Cleaning Ammonia - Is it illegal in Thailand?

Recommended Posts

Looking for household Ammonia for cleaning windows.  I have never found in Tesco Lotus, Big C, or Maakro.  Is it available in Thailand or is it banned for some reason?

Good place for cleaning supplies is in Homepro, good selection of HG Brand products. 

Lazada another option.

KhunFred,

To drink or use for cleaner?

I've lived in Thailand for more than 15 years. Never seen ammonia here.

If it's really for cleaning windows, a bit of white vinegar in a gallon of water does the trick.

Don't you have to convert it in the liver first?

I have bought some from a pharmacy, but for some reason it was mixed with alcohol.

I must admit I've never seen it here either. Perhaps the authorities banned it because it can be used to make compounds which would endanger them.

I've seen liter bottles of it for sale in the stores that sell fragrance products.  The one in Udon sells a variety of OTOP type cleaning products as well.  If I remember correctly, about 80baht for a bottle

Ammonia can be used for the production of explosives as can acetone (nail polish remover). People might get suspicious about request for such chemicals, and quite rightly.

 

I would find something else to clean your windows with to be honest!

We buy ammonia at a local chemical supply shop here in Ban Chang as well as acetone and some other hard to find items. Must be a shop similar in Patters
